About Continental Type Co.

Continental Type Co. was created by the oddly shaped Scinston & Wott (aka Winston Scully & Scott Biersack). Scott & Winston met through Instagram in 2012 and have been great internet and real life friends ever since. CTC is an effort to collaborate, make cool shit, and all the while not taking ourselves too seriously. Our work is guaranteed to make your art directors do less of this °°)╯︵ ┻━┻ and more of this ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°).

We both attended the Extended Type@Cooper program – a post-graduate type design program in partnership with the Cooper Union. Scott attended the 2015–16 NY program while Winston attended the 2016 program in SF. We had the opportunity to learn from some of the greatest in the industry. Hopefully we don’t disappoint them. If you’re reading this and you are disappointed, we’re extremely sorry.

Contact us about custom projects or workshop inquiries.

Scott Biersack

Wott (also known as Scott) is a freelance Designer and Illustrator that has trouble elevating his “small talk” into bigger talk. A truly human human – but first, a few more things to be aware of: breakfast is his most prized posession, he will never start a conversation with a single emoji and decimates all enemies in a game of Maaaario Kart. Scott wrote this bio in third person, neat.

Winston Scully

Winston Scully is a type designer, lettering artist, and graphic designer living and working in San Francisco, California. Most of his day is spent at Yelp supporting the US Yelp Community. He started pursuing type design in 2015 at the end of his undergraduate at Southeastern Louisiana University. Soon after he was accepted to the inaugural year of Type@Cooper West in San Francisco.

Winston spends his time documenting the pigeons of San Francisco and is on a constant search for the perfect sock. Winston also wrote this bio in third person.

Colophon

The navigation, titles, body copy and beyond are all set in Sanomat Sans, designed by Commercial Type. Glyphs and Robofont were put to work to create our b-e-a-utiful typefaces. And of course, Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign were used in the creation of this site, specimens, images and everything else your eyeballs gaze upon.

The foundry is hosted on this little thing called the World Wide Web and designed by the homie, Ben Jackson. Last but not least, special shout outs to the SF and NY Type@Cooper programs for teaching us right from wrong. We would be stranded on an island without the help of these glorious people: Cara di Edwardo, James Edmondson, Frank Grießhammer, Tânia Raposo, Stéphane Elbaz, Sumner Stone, Christian Schwartz, Berton Hasebe and many more.
